Yes, here’s a rocker shot.

Looks magic. CC's boards are unreal. I think I need a 6'10 long fish.

Center fin 5” from the tips of the swallows.

Very close to pulling the trigger on this. Wondering how this would compare to the the Tim Stamps Indo Fish.

Thoughts anyone?

Finally got to ride my Nautilus in clean playful shoulder high surf. It worked really well, paddles great, gets me in to waves early, feels soo smooth, flies through sections. Such an easy board to ride, I clicked with it right away, feels stable yet maneuverable, confidence inspiring, will be a great winter board for me. In the water I forgot it was riding a 6’4, felt smaller, I had no issues duck diving, the extra foam was a plus in paddling and getting into waves, I got way less tired, had a blast!

Sounds pretty rad. What your height/weight?

5’7 150lbs, my daily is a 5’8 Stamps GX or a 5’6 VS Shadow. I’m used to small boards, so going up to a 6’4 was pretty big jump, it’s my step up but was hoping it would also work average conditions which it does without feeling huge, stoked!

I like this. A fish and a Nautilus sound like a good 1-2 combo.

That sounds rad. I've been intrigued by this shape and others like it for a while now. Sometimes I just want to ride a board that is chill and easy to ride but if it can't turn I know I'll never ride it. I do wonder how it would compare to Stamps Indo Fish. I dunno if I've even read of anyone owning one of those, might have to go digging.

They look like a fishy shape for guys that ride hpsb's the majority of the time.
